The deceased woman has been identified as a 37 year old Italian national.

The bus was being operated by the travel company Flixbus and was on its way to Dusseldorf in Germany from Genoa in Italy.

Police are still investigating the cause of the crash on the A3W, but witnesses suggest the bus was travelling too fast in the wintry conditions. Flixbus confirmed the bus was fitted with winter tyres.

The bus had two drivers for the trip. Both are seriously injured, one is currently in intensive care.
